The Big Ten Network has just released an app for the Apple iPhone and iPad that will give users access to live games, as well as access to on-demand access to its video archive. The new channel, called BTN2go, will work as part of the 'TV Everywhere" initiative, which means that users will need to have authenticated access to the Big Ten Network through their cable or DBS provider. So far, Dish Network and DirecTV have joined cable MSOs Time Warner, Charter, and Bright House in offering access to BTN2go.
"As mobile technology has advanced, BTN2Go is what our fans are asking for," said Mark Silverman, president of BTN. "BTN2Go gives authenticated subscribers the option to watch BTN while away from home at no additional cost."
